…Starting around Strasbourg Cathedral and ending in Place Contades (a park) which is near to where we had parked.
Vilay took photo above.
Place Kléber is redone every single year. This year there is a new fountain that was installed (shown above). I don’t know if it is permanent or not but it does look as if it is. There was a problem with the water system and that is the reason the water is dark green…Yuck.
Place Kléber, again. When we lived in Strasbourg, we spent alot of time here. There is usually something going on or interesting people to watch.
A new shopping space in Place Kléber. It is very open and modern. A big improvement to what was there before.
Place de la République.
The Préfecture (court house) is located here. This is where we went to get my titre de séjour while I lived in France. Needless to say, we spent alot of time there too. ;)
Another photo of Place de la République.
I miss all the flowers in Alsace. The flowers are so colorful and charming. However, I am happy to be home here in the Jura with all the cows, horses and mountains. I love Strasbourg but not enough to leave the life I have found here in our tiny village.
On May 25th, 2007, I made my last post from France before we moved to Switzerland. Can you believe it has already been two years? We didn’t have an internet connection until July (long story) so it wasn’t until that month that I was able to take you all along for the first time on one our walks in the mountains.
Now, you can find two years worth of walks in the Jura on this blog. :)
Two years down and three more to go for the C Permit. Oh and then we only have to wait another seven years to ask for the Swiss citizenship! If one day my three youngest children become Swiss they will have three passports each!
One American, one French and one Swiss…all real.
Can’t get more international than that.
Have a great Friday everyone!!!
